    Umm.. I'm not telling you my name, but I know it and considering driving a train isn't going to change it no matter who gets on or off.

    the person who is reading the train is driving the train. because you have already told to consider ourselves as a train driver. i am reading, i am the train driver.name is abinash.

    the name of the driver was bob. but not anymore, he was fired after he hit me while he was trying to figure out this question.

    I have heard this riddle as "What is the drivers eye colour" which is good because it makes people try to figure out if there is some aspect to the data that might yeild that information. I think asking for the drivers name makes it too easy because you immediately go back and examine the form of the question.
